EWA Offers “Office Hours” With Veteran Education Journalists
Higher Ed Seminar journalist attendees can apply for 20-minute private consultations.

Want to talk over a big story idea? Need career advice? Or looking for an expert perspective on a workplace challenge?

Take advantage of this year’s Office Hours at EWA’s Higher Education Seminar, Sept. 15-16.

We’re offering journalist attendees one-on-one opportunities to chat with veteran and prize-winning higher education reporters and editors, including:

  • Eva-Marie Ayala of the Dallas Morning News
  • Erica Green of The New York Times
  • Sara Hebel of Open Campus 
  • David Jesse of The Detroit Free Press
  • Jon Marcus of The Hechinger Report 
  • Chastity Pratt of The Wall Street Journal
  • Delece Smith-Barrow of The Hechinger Report
  • Emily Richmond, EWA’s Public Editor

This is an opportunity available only to EWA members who attend EWA’s Higher Education Seminar, and space is very limited. If the number of requests exceeds availability, assignments will be made via a lottery until the spots are filled. 

Journalists who want to submit a request for a personalized 20-minute video chat must first join EWA, if you’re not already a member. (EWA membership is free for journalists.)  Then apply for a scholarship to cover your registration fees. Then register to attend. Once you do that, we’ll send you information on how to sign up for Office Hours.

EWA’s Higher Ed Seminar will offer journalists and communicators opportunities to hear from and interact with some of the nation’s top higher education researchers, leaders and practitioners. You’ll hear from, for example, student activists about their plans for fall protests, mental health experts about how violent videos and isolation are affecting students, and Inside Higher Ed Editor Scott Jaschik about the stories he thinks will be making headlines this academic year.
